65 nm analog mobile TV chip delivers high picture quality and mobility while reducing solution size and power consumption

SUNNYVALE, California, February 3 - Telegent Systems, the company that makes television mobile, today
introduced its third generation analog mobile TV receiver, the TLG1121. The
TLG1121 is the first single-chip analog mobile TV receiver based on 65 nm
CMOS process technology, reducing power consumption and solution footprint
relative to Telegent's previous generation product. With this chip, Telegent
continues to bring innovation and technology leadership to the analog mobile
TV market.

The TLG1121 provides global support for NTSC, PAL and SECAM TV
broadcasts, delivering worldwide support for free-to-air analog TV and FM
broadcast reception on mobile devices and enabling consumers to enjoy live
television programming - whether news, sports, soap operas or movies - while
on the go.

The TLG1121 is offered in a 6 x 6 mm package, reducing package size by 25
percent compared to Telegent's second generation solution while consuming 25
percent less power from the battery. The smaller package size provides
manufacturers greater flexibility in PCB layout, enabling smaller, sleeker
handset designs. The reduction in power consumption translates to longer
continuous viewing time for consumers. The solution builds on the existing
picture quality and mobility benefits of Telegent's award-winning mobile TV
architecture, delivering stable picture quality while in transit, at speeds
up to 430 km/h.

"The third generation of our analog mobile TV technology builds on the
breakthrough we have delivered in picture quality and mobility while
achieving further reduction in size and power consumption," said Samuel
, Telegent's president and chief executive officer. "The TLG1121 will
enable the next generation of mobile TV devices with longer viewing times and
innovative designs, while meeting consumer requirements for viewing
experience under both stationary and mobile conditions."

"Analog mobile TV has rapidly become the most prevalent form of broadcast
mobile TV worldwide, representing more than half of 2009 broadcast TV handset
shipments," said Will Strauss, president of analyst firm Forward Concepts.
"More than 88 percent of the global population will continue to receive
analog broadcast TV signals in 2013, providing compelling market growth
opportunities for manufacturers building devices for these regions."


The TLG1121 will be available for customer sampling in Q2 2010.
